*This product does not contain any materials related to the supplemental stories added to the Engage unit/module after Fall 2013.*
I created these assessments to use after close reading the texts with my students as I was unsatisfied with the tests included in the curriculum. They would be suitable for use after reading each of these books, whether using the EngageNY curriculum or not. Each assessment could also be broken up for homework or the questions discussed orally in class.
The final book does not have questions, rather a group project. My students loved completing this project this year, and I know yours will too!
I left the file editable for you to make any adjustments necessary for your class.
These assessments focus on text dependent questions, with many of them requiring students to use evidence from the text to support their answer, or say which quote helped them find their answer. This is an important skill in the CCSS, and one that my students need LOTS of practice with.
